During their first 2 years, President Joe Biden’s administration pushed through massive spending bills, has the US nearing war with Russia, and has supported the advancement of social justice causes.
With Biden’s poll numbers in the tank, his handlers hoped that Joe could pull off a good appearance in the annual State Of The Union Speech Tuesday evening.
Instead, the evening was full of notable moments followed by a highly partisan speech with Joe acting angry at various moments.
Some of Joe’s worst moements include:
Biden opened his speech with a gaffe, incorrectly calling Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer the “minority leader.”
The House chamber was stunned after Biden repeated an old Democratic talking point that has long been debunked by fact-checkers.
“Some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset,” Biden claimed.
“I’m not saying it’s a majority,” he continued as Republican congressional members began to protest. “Anybody who doubts it, contact my office, I’ll give you a copy. I’ll give you a copy of the proposal.”
“Liar!” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., shouted.
Biden backtracked saying, “I’m not saying it’s a majority of you. I don’t even think it’s even a significant — but it’s being proposed by individuals. I’m politely not naming them, but it’s being proposed by some of you.”
Some Republicans have supported re-authorizing huge discretionary spending programs on an annual basis. While this could mean that Medicare and Social Security could face cuts, Republicans have repeatedly said they don’t want to eliminate the programs.
Even left-leaning outlets have said Biden’s characterizations of the GOP’s plans for Social Security and Medicare are misleading.
Biden repeated the misleading claim about the number of total jobs he’s “created” since he took office in 2021.
“Two years ago, our economy was reeling,” the president said. “As I stand here tonight, we have created a record 12 million new jobs, more jobs created in two years than any president has ever created in four years.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), however, the economy under Biden has only added 2.7 million overall jobs, because the rest had been lost during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy shushed hecklers in his own party when they interrupted Biden’s tribute to a fentanyl victim.
McCarthy could be seen mouthing, “Shush,” after a member yelled, “It’s coming from China,” and another shouted, “It’s your fault.”
Biden renewed his call to ban so-called “assault weapons” during his address, garnering a standing ovation from his party and head shaking from the other side.
“Ban assault weapons now. Ban them now, once and for all,” he said.
The president made the declaration after talking about the gunman who allegedly used a handgun to kill 11 people celebrating the Lunar New Year at a ballroom near Los Angeles.
Biden did not elaborate on what type of firearm is classified as an “assault weapon.”
